The Spurs have the option of dumping Austin Daye‘s contract before the clock strikes midnight, but they’re going keep him instead, according to Shams Charania of RealGM. Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports (on Twitter) first reported that the Spurs were not expected to waive Daye.
Daye is set to earn a little over $1MM next season but only $250K of that was guaranteed. Acquired in a trade in February, the 26-year-old averaged 4.1 points and 1.4 rebounds in 14 games for the Spurs. Daye has averaged 5.4 points and 2.7 rebounds over his five NBA seasons, including his time with the Pistons, Grizzlies, and Raptors.
